About this pro

I have been teaching piano, vocal performance and theory for almost 30 years. My students range in age: young Children thru Adults from 4 to 70 y.o., beginners through advanced level. I concentrate on correct  technique, performance, sight-reading, knowledge of theory and musical history for advanced students.

My teaching style is flexible, I can combine Russian and American methods of piano school. I teach classical, pop music and jazz, depending on individual preference. I am very skilled, patient, dedicated teacher and inspire all my students to practice and play and sing to the best of their abilities.​

I enjoy to teach my students various skills and set achievable goals for them. And see them to achieve the goal and watch their progress is very satisfactory to everyone: myself, the student and the parents.

    Kira is an excellent teacher. After years of searching for someone to help improve my technique, Kira has gone far and above my expectations. She completed a comprehensive assessment of my general musical skills. And afterward, for instance, Kira introduced a part of a skill and after I mastered it, she added the other parts incrementally until I became fairly proficient with its execution. Needless to say, Kira has all the other characteristics one would expect from a good teacher. She is punctual, organized, observant, presents criticism positively, and is always reasonably available. Thank you for connecting me with her.
